This is what the Gunks can be all about sometimes: widely spaced shitty fixed gear, moves that look impossible, and a whole lot of fun. Did the first pitch of Land of Giants to the second pitch of Fat City Direct (.10b R in the latest Williams book). Not as run out as icons like Figures on a Landscape but waaaaaay more committing.
Initally I backed off, and my partner walked up it for his on-sight. I followed and was so mad that I backed off I ran back to the base, grabbed another partner and climbed it again. This time I lead the 2nd pitch without placing a single piece! I looked down from the trees to see the rope curving down to my shocked belayer. So I down climbed the pitch to just above the crux pin, and went back up placing gear this time.
